Hackers Target Real estate websites with skimmer in latest supply chain attack

Threat actors used a cloud-based video hosting service to perform a supply chain attack on more than 100 real estate websites operated by Sotheby's Realty that involved the injection of malicious skimmers to steal sensitive personal information . 

"Others import videos, even their websites are embedded with skimmer codes," researchers from Unit 42 at Palo Alto Networks said in a report released this week.

The skimmer attacks, also called formjacking, relates to a type of cyber attack wherein bad actors insert malicious JavaScript code into the target website, most often to checkout or payment pages on shopping and e-commerce portals, to harvest valuable information such as credit card details entered by users.
